"Cow Girl"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite

Painting cows, I kid you not, is a great pleasure. I can use every color on my palette, keep the brushstrokes loose - use the oils for what they're meant for. I met this creature in the farmlands of Alabama.

Hi Karin, found your link on Susan Carlin's page. I really like your blog and will be following it from now on. Your work is really good and something to aspire to. My ambition is to paint like you some day! Funny co-incidence cos I have a friend who has a cattle farm and I've taken loads of photos to paint. We have red poll cattle here in u.k. They look stunning against the green fields.
So glad I found your blog today!

Really cool, Karin. I use many colors in my Belted Galloway paintings, though they're not immediately visible. Even though the animals are "black and white" I NEVER use black. ;)

So how do you get her to pose? And does she know she's famous now? :)

Erika Nelson said...

She's a beauty Karin! You made me realize the cartoons with cows wasn't necessarily making them cute -they are cute!

Beautiful brushwork. Love it.
Cows are so cute.

I love that gold..... mixing colors is SO fun, especially when you have a great subject like this one. Interesting how you really played with/molded the shape, which is much simpler of a form than your other works. A beautiful painting, that's for sure!

Great painting. Never knew a cow could look so good.

The first time I saw the cow I instantly fell in love with it- You've done something with the strokes and colours that makes the cow you've painted stunning!

Nice vibrant, moving strokes!

Thanks for the thumbs-up and join in on the different strokes challenge - i'd like to see your version of the same cow.
Also a reminder - comments left with a link included will be deleted. Thank you.

I love it! The personality of the cow really comes thru somehow!

You have such a great eye. I really love your work! The stock exchange painting is really cool.

Hey Karin,
Excellent brilliant colors.
I have been studying your talent for a while and love how loose your style is, what medium do you use, if any?
Ciao
